Not by Bread Alone

If I had but two loaves of bread, I would sell one and buy sweet hyacinths, for they would feed my hungry soul.
- Koran

The life force and fragrance of a living flower has the power to wash our souls free of the grime inflicted by daily living. What better object to use for meditation than something of mutable beauty? Phalaenopsis orchids often bloom for months and make fine companions. They only require watering once a week and filtered sun to thrive. (Don't let them sit in water or leave water in the crown of the plant or they will rot.)

Like every beautiful object, a flower gains refreshed beauty by being moved or re-staged around the house. Advertise to yourself that you are worthy of beautiful surroundings by taking a moment to rearrange or move your flower. For example, consider the following options.
